Pistol, I most always get all I can in a bolt gun and still feed from the magazine 3.621 for the Winchester Custom Sharp Shooter that my Partner in Crime 7stw hooked me up with and it shoots the 145 Barnes TSX,s like a House a Fire .......With the No1 you can get a bunch more Im sure, but like I said the STW's seem to like a good bit of jump ....... If it were me I would load some at 3.60 and see how they shoot and work from there H-1000 is one of my favorite powders for this round and bullet combo but RL 25 seems to give as good of groups with a little more fps and the STW really seems to like it with the Barnes Bullets.......Let me know what happens

Yup, what my brother Earl said, and my other brother Earl said too!
I agree, these bullets don't need to be, or better put, shouldn't be jammed into the leade. They do just fine with a little jump, and most especially if you are using monolithic bullets, such as Barnes TSX, TTSX, LRX, or the all copper bullets from Hornady, or nosler. For the most part, box length, or SAAMI specs work just fine. Do the ladder test, and you will find your node!

Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

I found a used Sendero in March. I finally got to the range today to shoot some handloads.It took awhile to find components.Thanks to some good people in the Hood,I have some Rem brass.I found some RL25 to work with and used 140 BT's with Fed 215M primers.I loaded 3 shot for groups at 3.600 and 10 thou off to see the differance.Like some have just posted,that big jump is not a problem.All powder weights shot better at 3.600.I had groups at 79.5 do .955,80.0 do .412,80.5 do .455 & 81.0 do .755.Now I can fine tune what works best in that range and do some cronographing.
